What we offer

Whilst Private Equity & Venture Capital firms operate in different phases of the investment cycle, they share some similar risk exposures. Protean Risk can offer expert advice, whether it is protecting the professional liability of the firm itself, insuring the warranties on a transaction, or assessing whether portfolio companies are adequately insured.   

Our diverse range of products to the manager, fund and employees span from professional liability to employee benefits. Our clients benefit from dealing with one provider, and main point of contact, for all these insurance types.

Our Transaction Insurance team offers the latest products and the placement processes, smoothing the interaction with the deal teams and increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome.

Using our distinctive and free Portfolio Company Insurance Health Check we can, also, help you to assess whether existing or prospective portfolio companies are adequately insured. This includes preparing portfolio companies for investment, or divestment, such as ensuring effective Directors' & Officers' Liability (D&O) Insurance or Key Person Insurance is in place.
